Las Vegas Home - 'First to the Future'- NextGen Experience Demonstration Home

By
Real Estate Agent with Simply Vegas Real Estate

NextGen Demonstration Homes have been around trade shows since 2003, offering industry professionals and home buyers a chance to see, touch, and feel the latest technology available in home construction. In the past they had been built on-site in a matter of weeks, limiting them to those time constraints and space availability of the exhibit hall. That is all changing for the first time, and it's taking shape right now in Las Vegas.

The 5200 square foot NextGen home is well underway and scheduled for completion in December, in time for the International Builders' Show, the Consumer Electronics Show, World of Concrete and the International Roofing Expo. It's located just 6 miles from the Las Vegas Convention Center on a .56 acre lot zoned Rural Estates Residential...and almost appropriately for Las Vegas and Estates, just down the street from the grand property of Mr. Las Vegas...Wayne Newton's Casa de Shenandoah.

The 5 bedroom home with 6 baths and powder room features a Master Suite complete with Morning Kitchen, and a 3 car garage. Of course there's much more to this home from technology and 'green' construction. The home is built with NUDURA®'s Insulated Concrete Forms with their patented locking system that not only speeds construction and saves energy, but offers earthquake resistance. State of the art Kohler fixtures provide much of the water conservation found in the home, as well as unique designs. The high voltage wiring is augmented with a low voltage system with controls from Crestron Electronics. Their 'Total Home Technology Solution' integrates and operates most everything in the home, from lighting, draperies, and HVAC, to the home's prewired audio and entertainment system featuring SEURA's custom vanishing LCD television mirrors, and just about everything else you can imagine.

This all blends with other products from doors and windows to mechanical systems that not only have that WOW factor, but offer incredible power savings. The US Dept. of Energy has issued a 'Builder's Challenge', hoping to have 220,000 new homes constructed by 2012 that are 30% more efficient than homes currently built today. NextGen hopes to greatly exceed that standard, with this home potentially reaching as high as 95% above today's homes, and 65% greater than those energy efficient systems built from the DOE competition.

Las Vegas has been home to many 'firsts', and now has this 'First of the Future' home. It will offer a taste of energy and design efficiencies that will likely grow and inspire, touching home building across the country and beyond. For more information and some progressive construction photos of this incredible home, visit the NextGen Website.

Tom: I've seen some of the tech they've shown before with the quick builds, I can only imagine what they'll have in this one!

Hey Roberta they're building a couple homes that you can see from Pecos. Is this the one on the left going from Sunset to Warm Springs?

Bob: That sounds like the one. Has the grey stucco coat with the scaffolding all around. Looks like the paint should be coming soon.
